Perks and Programs

We asked Audi of America, Inc. to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • Product Experiences: Employees have the opportunity to experience our vehicles first-hand by participating in drive events throughout the year. These events range from our new car launches where employees sit in the vehicles and learn about new features from brand ambassadors to more in-depth product experiences that include closed-course drives with some of our more popular models including the R8 and TT RS. Employees are also eligible to lease brand vehicles at a discount. The discounted lease price includes title, registration, taxes, maintenance, and automobile insurance.
  • Pop-Up Events: We host many employee events throughout the year including celebrations for product launches, sales events, holidays, and birthdays. These events are accompanied by either catered food or food trucks. In our Herndon headquarters location, we partner with a local café to host an onsite 2-hour barista service twice a month in the spirit of the “Cars and Coffee” culture in the US. As an extension of our barista service, Audi’s president conducts a quarterly Colleagues and Coffee event to discuss and address questions or issues on the minds of employees. Also, we partner with a local organic producer to have fresh fruit, granola and yogurt delivered twice a week so our employees can enjoy healthy, complimentary snacks during the work day.
  • AudiPro: In 2016, we launched an innovation platform called AudiPro that allows employees to share their innovative ideas for ways to improve our business. To date, over 90 submissions have been made. This year, we expanded the platform to bring together cross-functional teams to solve key business challenges. This expanded platform, AudiPro lab, uses the concept of design thinking and encourages collaboration and virtual networking across the organization. Using collaborative technology, participants of AudiPro lab will work together over the course of a 12-week period to develop solutions to business challenges, and then present their solutions to company executives.
  • What’s Your Summit: We look for ways to support our employees in everything they’re passionate about. In 2016 we introduced the What’s Your Summit program, which helps individuals or teams who want to give back to the community by supporting their passion and effort with company funding for a specific cause or organization. This program has empowered several remarkable Audi of America employees to reach their personal summits by awarding them each $10,000 to make a difference in the world. Past participants have benefited programs such as Bar None, Kids of Kathmandu, Gwyneth’s Gift Foundation, Rotary Club of San Antonio, Junior Achievement of Northern Indiana, STEM for Her, Pathways for Exceptional Children, and the Atlanta Ronald McDonald House. To date, AoA has donated $60,000 through the What’s Your Summit program.
  • Professional Audi Ladies: Launched in 2014, the Professional Audi Ladies (PALs) employee resource group was created to inspire women in the AoA workforce to share innovative ideas, promote fellowship and friendship among the members, foster professional development in the form of mentoring and workshops, host guest speakers, provide continuous education, engage leadership, and build the company’s reputation through active community service involvement.
Our all-employee meeting is a huge event where we celebrate success and learn about our vision and strategy for the future
